On January 21st, Thomas E. Donilon, former National Security Advisor and a member of the Center on Global Energy Policy’s Advisory Board, will deliver remarks about recent issues in energy geopolitics and national security, including the recent collapse in oil prices. His speech will keynote an event to present a new report, Navigating the U.S. Oil Export Debate, a collaboration between the Center on Global Energy Policy and the Rhodium Group. After his remarks, Mr. Donilon will engage in a moderated discussion with Center Founding Director Jason Bordoff about current issues in energy geopolitics, including the US oil export debate.

The event will also include a presentation of the new report, coauthored by Jason Bordoff and Rhodium Group Partner Trevor Houser.
